Description

Intergalactic visions, deadly threats, and explosive
standoffs between mostly good and completely evil converge in a dystopian fantasy
that could only be conceived by the inimitable Walter Mosley, one of the
country's most beloved and acclaimed writers
Martin Just wakes up one morning after what feels
like, and might actually be, a centuries-long sleep with two new innate pieces
of knowledge: Humanity is a virus destined to destroy all existence. And he is
the Cure.Martin begins slipping into an alternate
consciousness, with new physical strengths, to violently defend his family--the
only Black family in their neighborhood in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles-- against
pure evil. Think Octavia Butler meets Jeff VanderMeer meets Jordan Peele.

Expansive and innovative, sexy and satirical, Touched
brilliantly imagines the ways in which human life and technological
innovation threaten existence itself.
